This was a nice tour, we visited great wineries. Have rated a "very good" however I would probably rate it just "good" as it felt a little unorganised. We had asked for lunch on the tour but as they had combined our medium tour with people on short and long ones it was never really clear when and where we... More

We booked through Viator as a shore excursion rather than through the cruise ship. The company was Canterbury Leisure Tours. From the start our guide was excellent and knowledgeable about the region, culture and sites. We visited No. 1 Family Estate, Giesen, Omaka Springs and the Makana Chocolate factory. My favorite was Omaka Springs - the proprietor was friendly and... More

These tours are great well organised with friendly staff, all wineries we visited were excellent, beautiful scenery along the way in very clean vans and a great and informative driver to top if off a great lunch was served.

This was a great tour from the cruise ship. We stopped at four wineries and all were good. Only problem was it was mostly white wines.

Booked this tour the day before as unexpectedly found I was going to have a whole day in the area. It was a really memorable day with Katrina the tour guide who was extremely freindly and knowledgable and totally catered the day around my wishes. Got to sample some beautiful wines by starting at Villa Maria with Stephen who was... More

Nice selection of wine yards, our guide Cat was very knowledgeable. The visit to the chocolate shop was pleasant although not really what we were interested in.

Our guide made this tour much more than just a drive around the wineries. She was friendly, funny and informative. The tour was good value for money and a day well spent.
